Intelligent high school students from New York were able to formulate unique ideas for better college preparation, life hacks that also contribute to better time management.
As reported by Forbes, these students created a life hack that would be useful for their fellow students. The life hack could also generate income in the future. From building a concept, the students made a business plan and starter websites to showcase their life hacks.
The Hackathon was co-hosted by Level Up this weekend. The high school students were grouped into three or four members.
These students surely know how to play with modernization. A lot of ideas were out of this world but can be really useful like an app that can give you a preview of what haircut you would want using filters inspired by Snapchat. This way, you can get a real preview of the haircut’s outcome and say bye to regrets.
Although that app can be really unique and useful at the same time, they lacked college preparations and time management, which are the main goals of the Hackathon. Out of all the rare and catchy ideas, three groups were able to make it.
